Quoting KFlyer (Reply 10): It was SU-GBP - 'Nefertiti' - B777-200ER LN71. Was scheduled for MS667 CAI-JED. Passengers were flown out on a different aircraft at 1343L (original ETD 0915L).
That was indeed the plane... I had a friend of mine that works in public relation and she told me that the smoke was filing up the tube and only one door was used to escort pax off.. I'm sure there are lots of questions and i don't want to go in speculations on what happen or why emergency doors were not deployed... I will keep you guys posted as I get more info.

Whatis going on @ maintenance
AA MD80 lost an engine on takeoff at DFW too this week (going to ONT), pilot declared an emergency. Heard it live on an ATC feed.

Also, for what it is worth, here is the Facebook comment from that video translated (badly) from Arabic to English. Make of it what you will.

The civil defense forces to control the fire and the passengers and their baggage safely, but The cabin of the aircraft suffered substantial damage as a center of the fire. And are now cooling the plane.
Operations Center told the occurrence of fire cabin leadership aircraft of Egypt Air and spread to other parts of the plane was immediately evacuated the passengers and there have been some cases of suffocation and the occurrence of serious damage by air and, unfortunately, lack of control over fire, cutting down the plane of the 777/200 to quell the fire was completely control the fire before it spread to the building and our Lord compensates the EgyptAir plane and Praise God that the plane was on site 7 did not take off only after the disaster. The plane was called Nefertiti and the new company received in 1997"

I wonder how big the fire was? If the fire crews were up in the flightdeck pouring water or foam everywhere then I wonder if given the age of this 777 and the fact they were trying to lease out their 77Es, whether they will even bother fixing it.
